If $3,750 seems like a fair price for a wine glass, you can skip our post today. This is for those who register at places like Crate & Barrel, not Opulent Items, where this $3,750 wine glass can be purchased right along side the $15 per glass variety.

 

Why the steep price? It has a small diamond on the stem and is made from borosilicate, a glass type known for its high resistance to thermal shock, which maintains the wine’s properties at normal levels while the glass is held in warm hands.

 

The 0.15 karat diamond with G color and VVS 1 purity and the borosilicate are fused at 1,200 degrees Celsius.

 

Sold? Choose from a Wine Glass version or Champagne flute. You can’t go wrong, though you can go broke.
